It seems that games like Contra and Metal Slug, classic side-scrolling shooters, will forever be remade as classic side-scrolling shooters. And yet, if they're fun to play, no one complains. That might change now that Shadow Complex is coming. At first glance, it looks like every other shooter out there. The characters are typical brutes, the graphics are reminiscent of Gears of War, and everywhere you turn people are firing weapons.
